Steve Wozniak might not still have a direct hand in Apple anymore, but both technology pundits and Mac fan boys alike look to the surviving co-founder for his opinion on the latest releases. His judgments on the new iPads, unveiled 22 October, may leave a sour taste in Apple’s mouth.
Although Wozniak was on a plane to London and missed the keynote presentation given in San Francisco last week, he was very quick to offer his opinion on the latest crop of Apple products when he landed. Speaking on stage at Apps World in London, Wozniak revealed that the biggest problem he had with the new iPads was the lack of extra space available on the tablets.
The maximum 128GB storage space on the iPad Air simply doesn't seem to live up to Wozniak's very particular tablet computing needs. "I carry all my personal media in the iPad. So I was hoping Apple has a 256GB iPad." Said Wozniak, who also stated he was hoping to upload every episode of CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory.
Whilst the iPad Air is an impressive 20% smaller than its predecessors, Wozniak criticized the iPad Mini for being just a little bit too big for his tastes. Indeed, with a 7.9-inch display, Apple’s Mini might look a little chunky next to the latest line of phablets, or Google’s popular Nexus 7 tablets.
